18 things to do before I turn 18 | Revisited

Image
A few months ago, I did a blog post called "18 things to do before I turn 18" where I spoke about things that I either wanted to do, go to, or overcome by the time I turn 18. I turn 18 on Saturday, so I thought it would be fun to go back and see which of those 18 things I have actually accomplished. 


- Have a social media detox (I did do this for a few days. Didn't notice much of a change. Was kind of frustrating if anything as I still had to use it for work.)
- Do some sort of fun run (Run, me? What was I thinking? I've done a few walks but I haven't done a fun run in a while...)
- Get over it (I would say, I am semi over it.)
- Save money for summer (I have done this actually, and I have saved a substantial amount so I am very proud!)
- Learn how to do laundry properly. I always forget how to use the washing machine. (I did it guys! I did it!)
- Re connect with people from my past (I have done this also. Sometimes it backfired. Other times it was the opposite.
- Go …

Should I go to Sixth Form, College or get an Apprenticeship?

Image
Last year, I did a video all about Alevels vs. Apprenticeships, and I just wanted to share it again in case you hadn't seen it. I also did one all about why I left sixth form, and you can watch them both below.



It's that time of year when people are making this kind of decision, so that is why I thought I would bring it up again.

If you want to chat in more detail about the above topics, drop me a message on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Bye for now,

Life Update | What's been happenin'

Image
I felt like it was time for a life update.

Sometimes I forget that I don't share all of my life online, I share what I choose to and I often assume people know what is going on, when really, I never actually shared it. Nothing particularly bad has happened recently, just a few things that I thought were worth mentioning.


I stopped weekend vlogging after Vlogmas. I did a couple of vlogs in January but haven't really picked up my vlogging camera since. If you weren't already aware, I have a YouTube channel, where I post beauty, lifestyle and all of that sort of content. I post minimum once a week, more often than not on a Sunday, and I love it so much. It's my outlet, my space to express myself and all of that other cheesy stuff that people say. You can check it out here - https://www.youtube.com/tamzinlena. I would really love it if you subscribed.

Stopping weekend vlogging meant I lost the ability to fill you in on my life every week. And I miss that, I really do. I ch…

Personalized clothing, yay or nay? | Royal Rose

Image
The internet recently has seen an increase in the amount of personalized clothing bought and worn. 
I ain't complaining. 
I don't care what it is, stick my name on it. From Nutella jars to dressing gowns, if something can be engraved, embossed or embedded, do it. 
I especially think personalized items make amazing gifts, and that's why today I thought I would introduce you to personalized clothing brand, Royal Rose

They make and personalize clothes for youngsters aged 0-13 years, but they are pretty accommodating, so be sure to ask for more details if necessary. 
One of my favourite designs from them is their "little blogger" print. I would totally dress my baby in this.. if I had one.. If you know a blogger with a little one, I would definitely check out this piece from Royal Rose
Here are some of my other favourite pieces:


If you have a birthday or event coming up, Royal Rose have got you covered. Their pieces are affordable yet high quality, and can be fou…

What makes a successful relationship?

Image
I want to say before I divulge into this post, that a relationship doesn't have to be romantic. A relationship can and does relate to friendships and the relationship you have with family members or even just acquaintances. As soon as you say the word "relationship" to someone, they automatically presume you mean romantic, and that's not always correct. Friendships and relationships with family members/others are equally important and can be analysed in a similar way.



What exactly determines a successful relationship is the question I am asking today.

Does every relationship that you have had have to be successful?

Can a damaging, negative relationship be successful, as it has still taught you something?

What is the end goal? What is the scale of success?

I would say a successful relationship is one that makes you happy in one capacity or another. 

Whether that relationship lasted for 2 minutes or 2 years.

If you think about it, you have a relationship with everyone t…
